Re: Why wasn't Worf in Code of Honor?
There's been modern day criticism of the old Buck Rogers serial as well, for using Asians as natives of the planet Saturn.
I didn't sense any intentional racism when I first saw "Code of Honor" back in its day, though Jessie Lawrence Ferguson's vocal delivery reminded me of Tim Moore's Kingfish. I thought the idea of an all black world was inventive.
Then again, I'm a white anglo, so I'm not the best to judge when it comes to these things.
